DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Queens Head, Fowlmere

Pretty sure the Queens Head is not open (for sale sign, curtains allways closed etc)
Should we possibly think of somewhere else??
Green Man, Shepreth.. drag snapper out (if he still lives there), Chequers at orwell (nice Lacon beverages)
whadda you reckon?

Re: Queens Head, Fowlmere

This pub is on the runs list for tomorrow. Is it definitely still closed? Any other ideas for what to replace it with?

Thriplow seems the obvious direct replacement, but I'm fairly easy on where to go.

Re: Queens Head, Fowlmere

Drove past last thursday, commercial wheelie bins blocking off carpark, large for sale sign outside, checked & google says permanently closed, their web site no longer exists....guess it is no more.
Thriplow's a really nice pub now so seems a good exchange.
